Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy
The beneficial effects of Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy/Radial Pulse Therapy are often experienced after only 3 treatments. Some patients report immediate pain relief after the treatment, although it can take up to four weeks for pain relief to begin. The procedure eliminates pain and restores full mobility, thus improving your quality of life. Over 80% of patients treated report to be pain free and/or have significant pain reduction. This FDA cleared technology was developed in Europe and is currently used around the globe. A wealth of medical experience, state-of-the-art engineering and optimal quality have been built into each ESWT device, and extensive clinical studies and tests have confirmed its safety and efficacy. If performed by a qualified caregiver Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment has virtually no risks or side effects.
Is it safe?
Yes. This FDA cleared technology was developed in Europe and is currently used around the globe. A wealth of medical experience, state-of-the-art engineering and optimal quality have been built into each ESWT device, and extensive clinical studies and tests have confirmed its safety and efficacy. If performed by a qualified caregiver Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment has virtually no risks or side effects.
What is the duration of the treatment and how many treatments will I need?
Treatment sessions take approximately 15 minutes depending on the disorder to be treated. Generally, 3 treatment sessions are necessary at weekly intervals.
What if I have a special health condition?
The safety and effectiveness of the ESWT procedure has not been determined on people with the following health conditions. Your doctor will provide you with information about how these and other conditions might affect the determination to perform the ESWT procedures.
• DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)
How is the treatment performed?
Coupling gel is applied to the treatment area of interest to enhance effectiveness. After these preparations, ESWT pressure waves are released via the applicator moved over the area of interest in a circular motion.
Why Consider Non-Invasive ESWT?
ESWT has a proven success rate that is equal to or greater than that of traditional treatment methods (including surgery) and without the risks, complications and lengthy recovery time. ESWT is performed in your physicians office/clinic, does not require anesthesia, requires a minimal amount of time, patients can bear weight (i.e. walk) immediately, and return to normal activity within a few days of the procedure.
Benefits of Non-Invasive ESWT
• Patients are immediately fully weight bearing.
• Bilateral patients can be treated at the same time.
• No incision–No risk of infection at the treatment site–No scar tissue formation.
• Patients are able to return to work/normal activities within 24-48 hours, resuming strenuous activities after 4 weeks.
• Patients evaluated for success at 12 weeks.
• Over 80% successful outcomes
[Published Data–Long-term pain relief (Results
• Non-invasive so biomechanics are not affected–future treatment options are not limited.
• Cost Effective.
• Reduced conservative care–ends the cycle– Reduced after care and complications costs.
• Reduced cost from lost work.
• Fast, safe and effective.
• Does not require anesthesia.
